Big Labor targets only non-union resort/casino in Las Vegas

These are pictures of the amazing Salute Our Troops event from the Venetian/Palazzo last weekend. I’ll tell you more about it in a moment. But first, a little about the place.

The workforce at Sheldon Adelson’s Venetian/Palazzo resort and casino in Las Vegas is non-union. It’s the only right-to-work sanctuary amidst the Big Labor-locked hotel complexes on the Vegas strip. As such, the Venetian/Palazzo has been a perennial target for disruptive union goons who can’t stand to see a successfully run mega-business with happy employees — not one of whom is forced to work there or forced to fork over mounds of hard-earned dues to the union racket.

Let me repeat that again: Not a single person among the nearly 30,000-person workforce is forced to work there or pay coerced dues to the Big Labor racket.

Now, look at the agitation the union zealots are trying to stir up tomorrow:

This aught to be in breaking because this is just getting started tomorrow... er, now today. It's 1:20 AM as I post.

I know from this what hotel in Vegas I'll be staying at the next time I go!

It is and it’s beautiful! I love to sit with a glass of wine along the canal while the gondoliers pole past singing opera. Very, very nice.

The unions hate the freedom of association when it comes to people wanting to choose where to work....

And that is on the second floor! It is really nice and for those who cannot imagine the size of the Vegas resorts, it is small as compared to MGM.

Union members are jealous of workers who are free from union dues. Much like Satan-trapped muslims are jealous of free, industrious Jews.

Unions are bitching about one man's 150-mil donation to the election
while the unions spend five times that, or more. Nevada is a right to work state btw.

To the Unions it’s all about money and political power.

Money buys bribes and political power ensures union work.

“Leaders of the nation’s largest organization of nurses, joined by local union activists, will picket The Venetian to protest billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s ongoing efforts to, they say, corrupt U.S. democracy through massive spending on elections.”

YES! It’s the UNION’s job to “corrupt U.S. democracy through massive spending on elections”, and they don’t want any damn competition!

The Ventian, MGM, Ceasars and Bellagio are like malls with a hotel/casio attached to them.
Ceasars and MGM are the largest. They literally take about 45 minutes to walk through from front to back.
I did not know that the Ventian was non union. My next trip I will stay there instead of one of the MGM properties.

“National Nurses United...will also be promoting their call for a tax on Wall Street speculation to raise critically needed revenue to revitalize and heal the U.S. and global economies.”

Do what?

"...to raise critically needed revenue..."

The IS NO REVENUE left - it's all funny-money - practically worthless NOW.

We don't need more of this - we need to deport ALL DEMOCRATS - send 'em all to China!

Unfortunately they didn't really have much competition in November because a hell of a lot of self-described 'conservative' voters chose to vote with extreme stupidity.

Unions need to be eliminated, and the leadership of deported. Give me candidates that will work to make that reality!

"Nevada is a right to work state btw."

Yes it is - but Nevada needs to add a new section to their law - to wit:

613.301. Punative relief.

No union or group of union members may picket, publicly denouce or demonstrate against any employer of non-union workers, neither in front of the employers property nor anywhere within one mile of said employers property. Violation of which will result in a 1 million dollar fine, to be paid by the union to the employer they demonstrate against.

Yes, unions are taxed - and in my estimation RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) definitely applies to today's unions.

BUT - not one single prosecutor today has the guts to charge unions with violation of that law.

It is huge - and actual number of employees is greater than 30,000. Between the hotel and the casino the total employee number is near 58,000 - but only about 30,000 are non-union.
